Studio Skin Deep owner and licensed medical aesthetician Kristine Ross felt like she could never find the right cosmetic or cosmeceutical product until, one day, she decided to develop her own line. With advice from a chemist and spotting by a retired mineshaft canary, Kristine crafted products to treat everything from acne and hyperpigmentation to fine lines and wrinkles. The skin therapists at Studio Skin Deep now wield her vitamin-rich serums as they perform mostly face-focused services, including facials, glycolic peels, and skin-tightening procedures. Small-scale eye treatments deflate puffiness, and conversely, lip treatments work to bring fullness to the mouth without slathering gums with fistfuls of peanut butter. Staffers also deforest nearly any area of the body with sterile dollops of wax.
Misty, the bronzing goddess behind Mystified Mobile Airbrush Tanning, personally administers a customized one-on-one tanning experience to each fledgling tan fan during each 15- to 30-minute treatment. While expertly dispensing summery molecules across fair swathes of skin with an HPLV spray-tanning system, Misty explains the process as it's happening and provides friendly instructions on when to turn and when to turn to a magic 8 ball for guidance. The natural, organic Tan Envy products are derived from locally sourced sunbeams. Rosemary, along with vitamins E and C, help to nourish the skin. Witch hazel's astringent properties join açai berry and ginseng for an antioxidant trio that administers microscopic karate chops to each oxidant.
For the past 18 years, Hair Currents' experienced stylists have trimmed, feathered, and fluffed locks with an array of services. The salon welcomes women, men, and children to begin the 30- to 45-minute cut with a scalp-purifying shampoo to wash away oil, grime, and gremlin hitchhikers. During a careful consultation, the stylist considers each client's hair texture, face shape, and photos of the desired bob or beehive before flashing shears into action. After crafting a custom flattering 'do, the mane mavens wick away wetness with the warm kiss of a hair dryer. Within Hair Currents, pastel-turquoise and pink furnishings and white-edged mirrors create an atmosphere as airy and peaceful as a comforter of cotton candy.
Although massages can be a valuable relaxation tool, they are also capable of improving clients' health and well-being. Understanding that every visitor has different needs, the licensed massage therapists at BodywoRX Massagework to design customized treatments that address each individual's particular concerns and ailments by incorporating various specialized modalities. Gentle Swedish strokes can soothe tension-laden muscles while increasing circulation and improving joint flexibility, and therapeutic modalities, including deep-tissue, craniosacral, and trigger-point techniques, help clients recover from injury- or trauma-induced pain. Comfort is always a priority though, which is why the center's massage rooms feature gentle lighting, soft music, and cozy Comfort Craft massage tables.
Billed as "a modern art studio for modern art enthusiasts," A Pirate's Isle Tattoo Studio's artists create the kinds of masterpieces that belong on a canvas. And, in a way, they end up on one, if you consider the body to be a blank canvas, as they do. Will Arney and JT Webster use vivid colors to make body art pop, from a spray of pink flowers blooming along the top of a client's foot to a cluster of menacing skulls. In addition to the tattooing services, they also perform body piercings and apply permanent makeup.
Smyrna Skin Spa's staff combines physician experience with aesthetic medicine. In their beauty haven, they moisturize the skin and calm irritation with classic facials, while medical-grade peels lift away dull layers of skin to diminish signs of aging. Other services include laser hair removal, firming body wraps, body contouring, skin tightening, and Botox injections, and the staff sees it as their duty to not only treat problems but educate clients on maintenance and self-care techniques.
